Nissan has disclosed plans to invest £100 million at its Sunderland factory in United Kingdom to get it ready for the second generation Juke funky crossover.

A successor for massively popular Juke is on its way and Nissan has announced today the striking crossover will continue to be built in UK at the Sunderland assembly plant where they will inject an estimated £100 million, thus securing the jobs of the 34,000 employees beyond the end of this decade.

The all-new Juke is slated to go on sale late 2016 and will make the switch to the CMF-B platform set to underpin the next Micra and Renault Clio. Little else is known about the next generation, but it's safe to say it will retain the love/hate exterior design while the interior cabin is bound to gain a more upscale fit and finish to better face the stiff competition in this crowded segment.

Chances are Nissan will introduce a previewing concept of the second-gen Juke early next year, with the production car likely set for a premiere in the second half of 2016.
